I dont have fibre yet, and there is a chance I wont be able to get it if too much property destruction is required.

 

But assuming miracles still happen, and the fibre install can be done, can I setup port forwarding or anything else I may want on the VF modem?

Assuming you are looking at the Huawei rebranded modem, yes - you can setup port forwarding.

 

It isn't possible to add an internal route, however.  (I.e. if you have two LAN segments, you cannot setup a route on the VF router to route between them).

 

I'm pretty sure that the user login gives access to the port forwarding.

 

Cheers!

Why choose Vodafone?

 

Almost any ISP (except MyRepublic) would give you better service, with acceptable performance (see below).

Thanks, I dont have two LANs. But I do have a Windows Home Server, which I have a couple of port forwarding rules for.

 

Having the VF modem for internet, and keeping my existing wifi router for wifi/LAN should make no difference to that?

I don't get it... The chart you posted shows Vodafone having the second most consistent fibre performance (first=Trustpower), doesn't it?

You are quite right about the chart.

 

With hindsight I didn't make myself clear - I was referring to Vodafone's notoriously poor customer service (their fibre performance is OK), and to MyRepublic's very poor speed performance (as shown on the chart).

 

Therefore I would suggest avoiding both providers, but for different reasons.

 

(I am currently trapped on Vodafone cable, with both poor customer service and poor performance.)
